, given the way the poll sort of reveals the war weariness of the american public, how can romney or obama persuade the u.s. public that they need to support a vision of leadership? what does this poll tell us about how americans are struggling with the balance between leadership both unilateralism, intervention, nonintervention as they continue to feel that priorities are here at homesome. >> well, that's exactly the right question, tammy, because i think struggling with ambivalence, tension, even contradiction is the heart of the matter. and let me try to unpack that. i'm going to offer four broad generalizations about the state of american public opinion on these questions in general, and then i will end where shibley ended, with some brief comments on the syrian issue. first, let me just make a technical polling note. and that is that this is a survey of adults. it's not a survey of registered voters, let alone likely voters. and so there are some, there are some differences as you impose increasingly demanding screens on adults. and these, these results will probably pick up more youn

's about time governor romney takes some responsibility. >> the vice president keeps the hits coming after his knockout debate with paul ryan. more than 51 million people watched the vice presidential debate. a post-debate poll released this afternoon from reuters found that 42% thought joe biden won the debate. 35% said paul ryan and 23% were not sure. rush limbaugh is sure. he knows exactly who to blame for those poll results showing joe biden winning. >> i you had told you it was in the card and preedictable ryan knew it. it isn't an excuse. you can get mad and say it is unfair but everybody else thought it was unfair and ruined. everybody thought it was a stacked deck. some of you may wish that ryan would have been feistier and not let him run all over him. my guess is he doesn't debate much. let biden be who we know he is going to be and realize you are in a two against one situation. >> nait nate silver forecast on president obama will win 283 and mitt romney will win 285 and. joining me are ezra klein and crystal ball. rush's job, is to counsel the depressed after last night's debat

president obama's weak performance in denver, mitt romney, for the first time, is seeing a bump in the polls and in some states is pulling narrowly ahead. i think biden will turn that around. put paul ryan in the gop ticket back, but at the same time, the burden is on right to keep the mojo going, to keep romney's sort of balance alive for at least a few more days until the president and mitt romney face off again next week. that is the biggest reason why this thing. also, one other important point. this is one of the first, possibly the only campaign where one side is really campaigning against the policies of the other party's vice-president. as much as they are running against the other party's presidential nominee. paul ryan and his budget proposals are really a flashpoint in this campaign. i think it is unique in that sense because biden is going to be hammering paul ryan and the gop ticket on his proposal. on a long-term fiscal issue. >> you framed it this way. in 2008 gentleman show debated governors sarah palin wondering in scranton joe will show up for thursday's debate. >> the sour
